The Innocent Man
John Grisham is a famous novelist known for writing amazing works of fiction such as The Client, The Runaway Jury, A Time to Kill, and The Pelican Brief. But his non-fiction book The Innocent Man: Murder and Injustice in a Small Town is one the author claims no one would believe if he made it up.
The true-crime docuseries contains six enthralling entries chronicling two murder cases that took place between the years 1982 and 1984 in Ada, Oklahoma. Each of these riveting episodes is filled with intriguing interviews, revealing testimonials, archive footage, and investigation updates that all contain anywhere between 42 and 52-minute runtimes.
When people begin watching the show, they’ll notice that at first, the entire ordeal seems pretty open and shut given the evidence that was presented at the time of the arrests of Ron Williamson and Tommy Ward. But like the Grisham book, The Innocent Man does a magnificent job examining the potential false confessions and evidence not followed up on including other suspects that may have actually done the killings.
Grisham himself is there to guide viewers through this unbelievable true story that fans of the genre and those that enjoy the author’s work, both in print form and on-screen, should make a high priority when it comes to deciding what sits atop their docuseries watch list.
